Achievement Center, Inc.

ADHD Summer Treatment Program

In addition to traditional therapeutic services, each summer in Erie County the agency offers the Summer Treatment Program (STP), which provides treatment for children, ages 6-12, with ADHD or similar disorders. The STP uses a combination of behavior modification techniques, recreation, art, and parent education based on the model developed by Dr. William Pelham (SUNY Buffalo). The ultimate goal is to help each individual child learn coping skills to succeed at home, in school, and in the community.

This program is offered in Erie, Crawford, and Warren Counties for eight weeks every summer:

Summer Treatment Program (STP) Outcomes
